“We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” – JFK
In honor of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s historic mission to the moon, Erik and Chris kick off Season 2 with a galactic-sized space-themed episode! Skylab, Voskhod 2, failed probes, Elon Musk, super stubborn Soviet scientists, and a special guest interview with Space GAAM’s Ryan Paul Thompson on some of the biggest fails in video game history!
